Cocktail Party Hors D'oeuvres Include Crickets, Worms

PHILADELPHIA (October 5, 2012)--The Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia is hosting an adults-only cocktail party on Oct. 27 called "Cuisine From the Collections."

While many of the living plants and animals represented in the museum's 18 million research specimens already are food for other species, most aren't typical kitchen staples.

Menu items will include cricket, worms, seaweed, buffalo and rabbit.

The food is by the museum's caterer and chefs, and students from Drexel University's Goodwin College of Professional Studies.

Tickets are $100 for nonmembers.

Proceeds benefit the 200-year-old institution's mission of scientific research and exploration.
